Our latest case study features the University of Leicester in the UK. The University runs a campus-wide HPC service that is managed centrally by the IT team. The HPC service is called ALICE and was launched in 2010. It had its first major upgrade in 2013, and in 2016 the University carried out a significant upgrade to the processing capability, to provide nearly 5,000 compute cores and will shortly complete a storage upgrade to expand capacity to 1.3PB.
The case study looks at how the University is now able to serve end users more efficiently, while making the best use of its resources. As Dr. Chris Rudge, Head of Infrastructure Services at University of Leicester, says; “It just works!”. Read on to find out more.
